Auntie Gwen is alive and well

(No, I'm not ignoring the terrible goings-on in London. Just too shocked to say much of anything. Those bastards.)


Got a snail mail letter from my dad today (he doesn't do e-mail) with some newspaper clippings from the ferry crash last Thursday along with this note:

Hi, I thought you might enjoy these pictures. "Auntie Gwen" was not damaged but I am selling her. No time to go boating.

Love, Dad

Yeah, you know how busy those pensioners are. Wanna bet he'll have a new boat by next summer?

That was pretty close. The ferry isn't that far away from Auntie Gwen.

I don't think she's worth much anyway - just a small fishing boat, but I heard that a bunch of expensive sailboats got smashed up really badly.

Hurrah for Auntie Gwen!

Sad that he's selling though!

Blimey - I leave Vancouver for a fortnight, and miss all the excitement!

I hope The Boathouse restaurant survived intact, I can't live without that place.

Oh yes, the Boathouse is fine. It was just the one dock - about 30 boats, I think and B.C. Ferries' insurance will pay for it all.
